On the cusp of AUVSI’s XPONENTIAL 2017 in Dallas, there are perceptible shifts taking place that – over time – will positively alter commercial UAS market dynamics.

Systems of Systems:

The industrial portions of commercial UAS markets are establishing themselves by assembling “art-of-the-possible” systems and optimizing these systems on the fly for specific vertical markets.  There are bottlenecks from collection to processing to delivery, and these weaknesses are being worked with the desired end states being increased mission-capable rates and time to information.
